Just a Peek- Foray

I seriously love that pic. It's a severe crop of a larger pic, but it's just perfect to me. Again, my camera suprises me. So tempramental. Plus, I think the LCD screen is going. Everything looks slightly out of focus on it...unless you magnify it. So that slows down the arduous picture-taking process. Good thing I've found a place to take pics that is less frustrating than most things I've tried.

Foray is a replica of a necklace that I made for my aunt. Having a pattern to follow made this one easier to construct than the first. But I still had to restring it a few times, partially because I'm a little bit of a perfectionist other because I would drop the string and beads would fly everywhere.

I'm considering making a little aventurine-based collection. I have about 4 vague ideas and already have this necklace and earrings. I think I have a name for the collection, but that I'm not about to share.

I know I've said it before, but it's always so cool to me how new ideas, sparks others. Also the creative life is helping distract me from, well, other things.
